Joe Staley: The Rams secondary is going to get pushed around again

“They don’t want to get hit for four quarters”

Much has been said and written about the 49ers’ rushing attack in their games against the Rams. In their two meetings this year, San Francisco has run the ball 75 times for an average of 145 yards per game. However, the reason for that success isn’t due to an advantage along the offensive and defensive lines. According to NBC Sports Bay Area’s Joe Staley, the advantage is on the edge.

“You know that they’re trying to talk...

You can’t measure heart, but I’m going to try my best to do so

My favorite part about covering this playoff run has been the all but impossible to quantify the sense of magic surrounding this 49ers team. At every turn, they have been doubted, yet when they have been faced with seemingly insurmountable levels of adversity, they not only responded, they triumphed by doing the spectacular when the chips were down, and the...

The Niners special teams coach explained all the things that went into his unit’s best play of the year.

The 49ers lone touchdown in their 13-10 win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round came on an incredible special teams play. Defensive end Jordan Willis got past the Packers front line and blocked Corey Bojorquez’s punt with five minutes left in regulation. With the Niners trailing 10-3, safety Talanoa...

Naturally, that means Jimmy Garoppolo and his propensity to put the ball in harm’s way at times. During yesterday’s media session, Jimmy was asked about his philosophy when it comes to throwing the...

The Intertwined Evolutions of Kyle Shanahan and Sean McVay

“It’s that Shanahan … well, he’s just a little bit better at this than McVay. McVay is one of the best offensive designers in the league, but in the face of similar defensive adjustments, Shanahan’s answers were just much better than McVay’s. The power running game with the fullback is just a touch scarier than a zone running game with a lead...

The Shanaplan: Why the 49ers offense will get back on track against the Rams

In the playoffs, the Niners have two offensive touchdowns in two games. That’s not going to cut it

A pair of dominant defensive performances by the 49ers has masked what have been two lackluster performances from the offense in the playoffs. Against the Cowboys, the Niners came out hot, set the tone, and scored on the opening drive.

The Niners never found their groove from there and into the Packers game last Saturday. The...
